Word cloud with Insights to Inspire overlay

Insights to Inspire 2022: In Our Own Words is a collection of Program Summaries from across the consortium for the Careers in Clinical & Translational Research (CCTR) metric. From 36 unique hubs come insights into how hubs are working to improve the experiences of their KL2 scholars and TL1 trainees.

Starting in December 2021 and extending through April 2022, In Our Own Words will feature one of the categories from the CCTR Common Metrics –Team Science, Mentorship, Grant Writing, Grant Success, Publications, and a host of other topics ranging from recruitment to the effects of COVID-19 on junior faculty.

Each of these documents includes the Program Summary as entered into CM-PRISM, as well as an introductory slide and contact information. We encourage you to reach out to these hubs to learn how their innovative approaches have impacted their institutions.
